Dialogue and the Development of Children’s Thinking: A sociocultural approach
by Neil Mercer & Karen Littleton
This book draws on extensive research to provide a groundbreaking new account of the relationship between dialogue and children’s learning development. It closely relates research findings to real-life classrooms, so that it is of practical value to teachers, and students concerned that children should be offered the best possible learning opportunities.
By using evidence of how the collective construction of knowledge is achieved and how engagement in dialogues shapes children’s educational progress and intellectual development, the authors provide a text which is essential for educational researchers, postgraduate students of education and teachers.
